I calculate a value for the 1st Ef and coding is provided for the 1st Ef value to also appear in the 2nd Ef.

When I run the program using a different set of variables the correct value appears in the 1st Ef but the previous result still appears in the 2nd Ef. The only way to get a correct 2nd Ef is to close out the program entirely, reload the Program and run it again.

It's pounds to pennies that the code that assigns the value to the
second entryfield is nested in an IF...ENDIF or a CASE construct.  For
the first calculation the test succeeds and the value is assigned to the
second entryfield.  For the second calculation the test fails so the new
value isn't assigned and the old value stays displayed.
